Increase Leg Strength
Is there any way I can increase my leg strength. I only work out on squat with about 150 pounds. I do squat to the floor though. The most I've ever been able to work out with was about 225 but that was when I was on a cycle. My legs have always been kind of weak even though on leg day I'm totally spent when I leave the gym. I do about 20 sets.
5 sets of leg curls
15 sets divided up three ways between 3 of these 5 exercises: squat, leg press, hack squat, leg extensions, squat machine (not smith machine)
Any ideas? I'm thinking about doing high reps next week to see how that feels.

2 things that worked for me:
Use an explosive movement when squatting.
Do a triple or a double at a very heavy weight as your last set or 2.

hands down, 20 rep squat routine, nothing else works like it
